Founded by Parents With a Focus on Improving Education Through Technology
Founded in the fall of 2003, Time4Learning launched its online education service in the spring of 2004. Initially, the company offered an online curriculum for PreK-3 and started with a handful of employees answering calls and working from founder John Edelson’s living room. Since then, Time4Learning has added grades 4-8 and high school to its product offering, as well as other features and benefits for its members.
Time4Learning provides a high-quality, effective online learning curriculum for students as well as time-saving tools and useful resources for parents. The award-winning curriculum has been refined through years of feedback from educators, parents, and students.
Since it was founded, Time4Learning has also added numerous perks and improved features to help provide a more well-rounded learning experience for students, and make it a trusted homeschool solution for families, including:
